I now have about 1,000 rounds through mine. S&W and others could take a lesson from Ruger when it comes to this double action. It stages smoothly to the release point of the hammer and then just touch more and the round is fired. Very little trigger overtravel. Accuracy has been superb with ten shots easily inside the black at 10yards. Light and impressive. This may well become Ruger's top seller IF they can get production and distribution numbers up.

I've heard it's a pretty bad piece with NUMEROUS failures to fire, failures to feed, etc. during the first few hundred rounds. Maybe you got lucky or maybe Ruger finally got its act together.

If Ruger really corrected the LCP problems then it would be a very good piece.

I think you are mixed up on the gun Handloader is talking about. He is talking about the new polymer revolver, LCR not LCP.

Yeah if you have failure to feed on a revolver you've got really big problems.

Update: Now with 2,000+ rounds, I am pleased to report absolute reliability and very good accuracy. I have some J frames I like a lot and find the accuracy of the LCR is marginally better. I usually fire at 15 yards, ten shot groups. Always in the black. The 158gr rounds are a bit stout and I've settled on the 125 to 135gr weight as ideal. +P of course.

My prefered bullet in the .38 Special and .357 magnum is the 140 grain Remington SJHP. Handloader...You might try them too. They give some of the advantages of the 158 grain (hitting power) and some of the advantages of the 125 grain (Speed). I've taken deer with the 140 grainer with very good results with my Colt .357 magnum SAA...

I use a 140 grain bullet in my loads too. They are the best of both worlds for the 357 - unless you have a barrel that is 10 inches long anyway.

Thanks Sir Bushmaster for the recommendation. One of the things I discovered "late in life" was just how good the Remington bulk bullets can be for accuracy and hunting. In fact, it is my top bullet for useage in the 41 Mag (200gr JHP).

A fun thing for me is getting some old watermelons from a friend that picks up past dated fruits, melons and vegetables from a major grocery chain. These I use for testing bullets for expansion and penetration.

If you ever are hunting watermelons, let me know and I can tell you some of the better choices for handgun bullets, but, right now, the new CorBon DPX has been the outright most impressive. Oh, that wonderful sound of exploding melons . . .
